Versatile fluorimeters of the fluoroSENS M-SERIE

The fluoroSENS system is a versatile bench-top fluorimeter with the ultimate in sensitivity – single photon counting. The system is available in two standard configurations: the fluoroSENS MINI and the fluoroSENS PRO.

The fully modular design also allows individual configuration from a wide range of available light sources, monochromators, sample holders and detectors. The fluoroSENS system can also be easily switched from stationary to time-resolved measurements.

Key features of the fluoroSENS M-SERIES are:

  • Individual system configuration
  • Exceptional dynamic range and spectral resolution
  • Exchangeable, kinematically mounted sample holders with temperature control as required
  • Comprehensive and user-friendly software for spectral and kinetic measurements
  • Spectral corrections are performed in software as standard
  • Suitable for fluorescence, phosphorescence, quantum yield, electroluminescence and many other measurements
  • Multi-channel scaling (MCS) and time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) optionally available
  • Many accessories are available

Please give us a call. We will be happy to send you further information and support you during configuration.
